Here is a little vid of what it can do. I haven't worked out how to do this 3d routing yet but it shouldn't take long.

Very nice stuff, that YJ frame is very accurate. You should make 3d license plates.

It's accurate cos I drew around a plan drawing of a wrangler chassis I found online. I just scaled it to a 10" wb for the newbright jeep shell.

So your telling me all you need is a picture of a chassis and you could make it for meh? Oh your going to have your hands full! Out of interest, around how much would you charge for a delrin chassis??
Would suit my next project down to a T.

Pretty much Ian, but I ain't no cad designer, I can draw and design a little in illustrator. I'm hoping to start by cutting the things that others design and draw. I will try to do my own bits and I'm open to try anything.

Up to 25mm thickness, 800mm x 1300. It won't cut metals.
